Great looking plane Dan.  I’m sure you will have many enjoyable hours flying her.

Congratulations Dan, very nice looking plane, all the hard work has finally paid off and now its time to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

... blue skies and tail winds!

Congratulations Dan, from the present owner of the first 801S you built for your sister.  I am still enjoying flying it, hope to many more years.  Hope you enjoy your 750 Cruzer as well.

Congratulations!  But I sure hope it lasts longer than that!  :-)

Dan, It really looks great. I have about 10 hours on my Cruzer now. I am so pleased with the way it handles. I'm still trying to adjust out the heavy left wing. Did you notice this on your first flight ?  Other Cruzer owners have noticed the same thing. I'm just not going to "squeeze" my flapper trailing edges. I don't like the thought of bending my hard work.  Perhaps one day we will meet up at Mexico MO, or perhaps Oshkosh.

Beautiful work Dan.  Did you go with the Viking 130 HP GDI engine?

if so, may I ask what your nose and main gear weights were when you weighed it for your W&B calculations?

Thank you.
